To All,

Once again reports of the mistreatment of our Veterans have made the headlines. Click the link below for the details of the roach and rat infested living conditions that the out patients from Walter Reed must endure.

Once again we call on our elected officials to do something about this and as well as the inadequate resources for the families of those killed in combat.

400 Billion Has been allocated for the war in Iraq and we have to rely on private contributions to build proper rehabilitation facilities for our injured soldiers.

Even 4 Billion or 1% of this budget would go a long way to rectify this situation.

It is a pretty sad state of affairs when there will be probably be more money spent on presidential campaigns then will be allocated to the support of our injured veterans and the families of those killed in combat.

We have been asking for support for some time (see links below) and we will continue till something is done.
